Crime Prevention Tips

Vacation House Watch

The Roanoke Police Department provides a security house check service for all residents of Roanoke.  The service is available to residents who will be away from home for at least three days. 

The program allows officers and Citizen's on Patrol volunteers to check your residence while you are away.  This service does not replace your responsibility to properly secure your home.  We suggest you also make arrangements with a neighbor to watch your home during your absence as well. 

Please submit the Vacation House Watch form  from the comfort of your home.  It is important that you protect your absence from your home from unwanted disclosure.
